Biographical history

Sarah Benson Walker (nee Mather) was the daughter of Methodists, Robert and Ann Mather, who joined the Quakers in 1834. That same year Sarah agreed to marry George Washinton Walker, despite once referring to him and James Backhouse as those 'pesky Quakers'. Sarah had ten children and served on Jane's Franklin's visiting committee to the Cascades Female Factory, and regularly participated in Monthly Meetings.
